I was diagnosed about a month ago and my rheumy wanted to start me on MTX along with folate, but I had a nasty sinus and ear infection and she said to wait until the infection cleared up to start the MTX. I saw the ENT yesterday and finally got the all clear from him that the infection is gone and that it's okay to start the MTX now. So I'll start it tomorrow night. Over the past month I've definitely gotten worse. The pain was the worst in my hands/wrists, feet/ankles, but it's now in my knees and elbows too. I'm nervous to start the MTX but relieved that I can finally start the treatment too. I know it'll take a while to feel the effects of it though.
